NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Social Science Civics Chapter 7:Urban Administration

Get

The last chapter talked about rural administration, and this would deal with urban administration. The whole chapter is in the form of a case study. We learn about the municipal corporation's different functions, which operates at the city level in urban areas. The chapter tells us the functions of the municipality and how they perform those functions. We would also learn how the municipality handles cases of conflict. The chapter concludes by giving an example of how protests by people can also compel the municipal corporation to take actions. The following are the special points of the chapter:

  • The chapter tells us a story about young friends who are curious about the municipal corporation's functions. A retired municipality officer helps them answer their question.
  • We learn about how the Municipal Corporation is responsible for garbage collection, maintenance of street lights, roads, sewage etc. It also looks after schools, hospitals and dispensaries.
  • The chapter also tells us about the division in the municipal corporation.
  • Cities are divided into different wards. Ward councillors for these wards are elected.
  • A group of councillors take decisions that might affect the entire city.
  • The commissioner and the administrative staff are responsible for implementing these decisions.
  • Councillors are responsible for keeping the demands of their ward in front of the council.
  • There are different departments in the corporation—for example, the water department, garbage department, road department etc.
  • We also learn about how people sometimes protest in front of the corporation when their demands are not met.
